I have written about Grindr in a previous post. I have indicated that a picture of Char Siew and me was popular with the boys. A lot of the boys start the conversation by commenting on how cute Char Siew is. They then proceed to giving me a compliment as well. That has definitely been a good experience.
I promised that I will experiment a little bit and change my profile picture to see what the boys of Grindr like. Yesterday, I changed the picture to my Tokyo picture with Hello Kitty. Guess how many messages I got. A big fat Zero. That’s right – nobody said hello. Only three of the guys I had previous conversations with made a comment about the new picture.
I will proceed with the experiment. This time, I will take myself out of the picture completely and just leave Char Siew. I would like to see how much of the impact of the previous picture can be attributed to my cute puppy Char Siew.
